Change System Sounds in Windows 11

There are a bunch of tasks which we carry on our computer, for example, watching tutorials, programming, gaming, listening to music. However, if you may have noticed which you must have, whenever a specific event or task is carried out or triggered there is also a sound played corresponding to that event, like when you plug in a new USB, pen-drive, hard-disk, your mobile phone to your pc. For a variety of distinguished events in our computer, activation of these correlates to the playing of a sound, and we call them System Sounds.

To change the system sounds in Windows 11 is not that hard or hectic, all you have to do is go through these simple steps and have your mission accomplished with Respect +.Step 1. 5, 6, 7, Start, this is not a dance tutorial, although you have to navigate to the Start menu and in the search bar type Sound and then tap on it. Alternatively, you can also right-click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner and choose “Sound Settings”.

Step 2. Once the Sound settings have been opened then scroll down to “More sound settings” and click it.

Step 3. Click on the “Sounds” tab option.

Now you will see a dialog box opened like this, it already has been navigated to the “Sounds” tab, and you also have to come to this tab.

If you want no sounds at all to be played, then you can select “No Sounds” from the “Sound Scheme” drop-down list. Otherwise, if you wish to change the default Windows sounds, then leave the option to be the “Windows Default” one and follow along.

Here, you can clearly observe the “Program Events” scrolling section and there are many list items and if you select a sound and you want to listen to it then click on the “Test” button, and the sound shall play.

Now, comes the part where you want to change the system sounds, say, you want to change the “Critical Battery Alarm” system sound of your windows.

Step 4. Just click on the “Critical Battery Alarm” and then click on the “Browse” button in the lower right corner then select the sound of your choice and click OK.

 If you want to play no sound on the startup of your computer then uncheck the “Play Windows Startup Sound” box.

In a very similar way that we changed the “Critical Battery Alarm” system sound, we can change any rest of the system we want to.

And now, we can say that Mission Passed! Respect +.
